  4. Most weeds tend to look pretty, it fools the non-gardener into letting them be.
    Love your composition.

  6. Stunning! Flowers are flowers, I say :) One of the most beautiful flowers in Alaska is actually a weed (fireweed), but the colors and structure of the flower are so pretty!

    Great take on the challenge :)
